title:Masters of Photography: Diane Arbus other title:Going Where I've Never Been: The Photography of Diane Arbus
The work of photographer Diane Arbus as explained by her daughter, friends, critics, and in her own words as recorded in her journals. Illustrated with many of her photographs. Themes: Arbus' quirky go-it-alone approach. Her attraction to the bizarre, people on the fringes of society: sexual deviants, odd types, the extremes, styles in questionable taste, poses and situations that inspire irony or wonder. Where most people would look away she photographed. This program was made at the time of the major Museum of Modern Art retrospective of her work which followed her success at the Venice Biennale and her suicide.
